Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum recently appeared on an interview talking about the importance of partial knee surgery replacement. In this interview, he highlighted that one of the best options for dealing with an injured knee is considering a partial operation on it. A complete knee surgery requires constant checkups and, in the long run, the patient will need another surgery to replace the knee he or she has. This is an important recommendation for athletes especially since knee surgeries can be a threat to them.
